Lessons from the pandemic for Climate Justice
Date: Fri 05 Jun 2020 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the injustice and inequalities that are built into our economic, governmental and social systems. Those disproportionately affected by the pandemic are also those who will suffer the most from the impacts and consequences of climate change. At the same time, responses to the pandemic, at the local, regional and global level, have also indicated new emergent possibilities when there is shared sense of urgency and a wide-ranging socio-political commitment to decisive action.
The idea of Climate Justice is fundamentally predicated on viewing climate change as more than just a scientific concept. This shifts focus to the philosophical, political, cultural, and contextual dimensions of climate change as refracted through embodied and situated considerations of justice.
